Mabrouk El Mechri

MABROUK réduit

Born on 18 September 1976 in Versailles, El Mechri began his career in 1995 as the assistant to director Mathieu Kassovitz. He then went on to direct three short films: Mounir and Anita in 1998, Génération cutter in 2000 and Concours de circonstances in 2003. If Virgil is his first long film, it is JCVD who will reveal him as director. He launched himself in the TV series in 2010 with Maison Close. In 2012, he will release his spy film The Cold Light of Day, which will be a commercial failure. Since 2018 he continues in television with the police series Nox broadcast on Canal+.
